The real joy, though, is that afterwards I was able to just take a quick shower and I casually wandered on over to Sushi (6 blocks). After that I drunkenly wandered around a bit and dropped by an art gallery (7 blocks with some tipsy zig-zagging) to take in their Second Saturday (I never knew they had a webpage for it) offerings. Now I'm relaxing back at home (another 4 blocks), still buzzed. I'm really diggin' this whole "living downtown" thang. *everything* is within walking distance -- and I mean *EASY* walking distance. :)
I need to swing by Ikea tomorrow, though.
